Speaking in Strings: Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg

1999 Rated NR 1hr 15m

This acclaimed documentary tracks the tumultuous life and career of powerhouse classical violinist Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg, who has been both lauded and criticized for being too unrestrained and volatile onstage. Though widely considered eccentric, wild and unorthodox, this "bad girl" performer clearly plays with passion and emotion. Speaking in Strings delicately and lovingly handles her often painful life.
